Homecoming Week


Here in our little town our school celebrates Homecoming during basketball season because we share our football team with another school a town over.  Last week was Homecoming.  Every day was a themed dress up day.  We missed Monday but jumped in feet first the rest of the week.

Tuesday: Pirate Day


Wednesday: Storybook Character Day (Clifford the Big Red Dog and Copper from the Fox and the Hound)


Thursday: Animal Day (Party Animal) (Bren didn’t feel like dressing up this day)


Friday: Spirit Day, Go Eagles!


Next week is our school’s 100th day of classes.  In Kindergarten they have to make a project out of 100 of the same thing (100 pennies, 100 M&M’s, etc.).  We made the Washington Monument our Q-tips (and lots of hot glue!).  At first we were going for a log cabin but as it kept getting taller and taller and taller we changed course and ended up with the monument.  Bren is so excited to take this to school next week!  He counted out all 100 Q-tips and Andy and I did the assembling (since we were using hot glue).  He kept saying “this is going to be the best one there!”


And speaking of the 100th day of school – that means after next Wednesday there are only 80 DAYS LEFT!  Yikes!  This school year is flying by!

  1. So fun. Our schools don't do spirit week until they are in high school. We are in a large district and the grade levels are broke up between 5 schools.

  2. Homecoming week was always so much fun! I LOVE the Washington Monument, what a great idea!!

  3. You're right, the school year is flying by fast! I like the Q-tip Washington Monument idea for 100th day. My kids' school mascot is also the Eagles.
